Great art, great banter, great suspense for a mystery, shocking ending; Defenders is climbing the ranks as one of Marvel's best monthly comics. SPOILER: It makes you wonder why no one has ever tried to just sneak up and shoot Black Cat before, she has no Spider sense or armor.

Great art but the issue felt all over place, like just a bunch of ideas thrown together. The fact that the cover to this issue had very little to do with the comic is annoying. Ganke and Miles' friendship and dialogue save it from a 5.
